Sheffield United left-back Max Lowe is on the verge of joining Nottingham Forest on loan, according to reliable journalist John Percy.
The Lowdown: Lowe linked with exit
The Blades may be fairly short on left-back options currently, but that hasn’t stopped Lowe from being linked with a move away from Bramall Lane.
A temporary move to fellow Championship club Forest was mooted recently and another key update has now been provided on the matter, as deadline day slowly approaches.
The Latest: Journalist confirms news
“#nffc are close to signing Sheffield United defender Max Lowe on loan for the season. Lowe could make his debut at former club Derby this weekend. Forest targeting a number of other signings before Tuesday night’s deadline.”
The Verdict: Strange decision by Blades
While Lowe was unlikely to feature prominently under Slavisa Jokanovic this season, it does still seems slightly odd that United are willing to let him go so late into the window.
It may be that a replacement is lined up, however, which would then make far more sense, in terms of allowing Lowe to join their Championship rivals.
Enda Stevens will also hopefully return from injury next month, which alleviates the issue significantly, given his status as an undisputed key man for United.
